Sedition Cases Rife as Activists Arrested in India Amid Farmers' Protests

Over the past 5 years, 233 people have been slapped with charges of sedition, including cartoonists, activists, and students under the Narendra Modi-led government in India.

A numbet of sedition cases have recently been filed against Indian parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor, senior journalists Rajdeep Sardesai, Mrinal Pande and others for sharing "unverified" news during the farmers’ tractor rally in the Indian capital city of Delhi on 26 January that turned violent after a group of protesters breached the iconic Red Fort.

The farmers' protests have received much attention around the world over the past few weeks, with Rihanna and Greta Thunberg tweeting in support of the agitation.
